For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.
In this audiobook she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells listeners what it took to get back on her feet - the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.
She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.
The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath - both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.

Fascinating but too long
This is so worth listening to but be prepared to invest a lot of time. Hillary reading it adds interest to the narration. It's not just the insights into the US election but what she has to say about living with such a devastating loss and coping with the barrage of insults and lies. Thank you Hillary.

Not what it purports to be
It is awful that she lost but this book spends far too much not discussing why and then primarily discussing external factors, not internal. There is a whole chapter on Chelsea Clinton which makes no sense in the context of this book unless she is being positioned to run for something. Hillary says she takes the blame for faults in her campaign but they are barely described. I don't think you will be much wider having read this: it is another example of Hillary not opening up and being real. for example she says her campaign team was amazing: everywhere. how can that be reconciled with such poor results in key states. if not intending to be fulsome, it may have made sense to wait a little until she could be.

We will persist
Thank you for writing this. I cried, smiled, laughed, dreamed of what almost was, cried more, and commit to going on to persist. We are always with her. Thank you for all of your "firsts". I didnt know about many of them.

There are many facets to this book. From a personal standpoint, it will satisfy the disappointed fans. Secretary Clinton feeds the soul...her words of hope, leadership, understanding, compassion, strength, and dignity (all articulated in full sentences with proper grammar) are inspiring. Much of the media coverage focuses on her so-called excuses for losing. The most important part of the book, however, is NOT the evidentiary case she lays out to support her conclusion that the Comey letter moved voters away from her. The most important part of the book is her detailed analysis of Russian intervention in the 2016 US election. This is the story that needs to be told. The history and motivation of Putin, along with related Russian activities and objectives, is something that all Americans need to understand.
